three ex-boyfriends (all wore suits), Barney Stinson (dated briefly)
|Gallery of Karina images (2)|
In Girls Versus Suits, Barney tries to seduce her, but she turns down his advances; she later tells Marshall Eriksen that she's had three ex-boyfriends, who all wore suits, and all three of them were jerks, so she vowed to never date anyone in a suit ever again.
When Barney returns, without a suit, carrying an urn of ashes and crying, claiming that a loved one has died, Karina agrees to go home with him. However, while in his apartment, she discovers that Barney has deceived her; he has a wardrobe full of suits, and forces him to choose right then either her or his suits. He lies, telling her he'll get rid of the suits in the morning, and they sleep together.
In Slapsgiving 3: Slappointment in Slapmarra, she slaps Marshall during his montage of getting slapped by Barney's ex-romances. Initially, she apologizes, believing she had misheard Marshall saying he was friends with Barney Stinson. However, Marshall confirms it, obtaining a second slap. She is the fourth person shown.
Notes and Trivia
- Her name is never mentioned during the episode (everyone simply refers to her as "the new, hot bartender") but is revealed in the cast list.
- Like Nora, she didn't recognize Marshall in Slapsgiving 3: Slappointment in Slapmarra, but in Girls Versus Suits, she tells him why she doesn't date guys with suits.
